  1. The new changes, of benefit caps will impact children, families, married couples and the disabled disproportionally + unfairly.

    Nobody is against good house keeping, but the new system of benefit caps needs different implementation. It unfairly targets children, families,, married couples and the disabled. The house of Lords can still stop the implementation of these changes and force a review of them. Please raise awareness of this.

    • The NHS Logo - 'Your Health, Your Choice' should include giving patients the right to not be treated privately

      GPs should be obliged to give patients a letter explaining that they can choose between being referred to a private or NHS service provider. GPs should not make the choice because it has been revealed that a third of GPs have a financial interest in private medical companies so they have a vested interest.

      • Benefit Changes

        I agree like anyone that the system needs to change in the UK. We just can't afford to keep going like we have been.There are many issues with it. People who have been in the 'system' for many years with a bad back, however they have never had a scan or a procedure. I have a genuine bad back,had scans, many procedures and operations and pending more. I have paid into the system my whole life, but I am unable to work at the moment (I am still employed). Yet I have been messed about for 4 months in regards…

        • Stop Bedroom Tax

          Bedroom Tax is supposed to be in forced to free up houses for people with more in their family that's my understanding. I am unable to work my wife and I are disabled so we have to pay for the extra room, but if you are in a 3 bedroom house and live alone but work and pay full rent your not penalised so don't have to pay how is that freeing up houses ITS JUST BULLYING US out of our homes

              • urging the pope/catholics to sell off vatican riches to combat poverty

                the vast wealth of the vatican should be sold/auctioned to combat poverty. could a huge campaign achieve this? Is the new pope brave enough to do this? Christ entered Jerusalem on a donkey, not in a rolls-royce. How can the Catholic Church be so far away from the teachings of Christ?

                • Treat all pensioners the same, no matter where they live.

                  Everyone pays into the National Insurance Fund under exactly the same rules. Everyone qualifies for the state pension under exactly the same rules, based on contributory years. When it comes time to pay the pension, different rules are applied depending on where you happen to live. Pensioners living in Commonwealth countries have their state pensions frozen whilst 500,000 pensioners living in non Commonwealth countries have their state pension uprated each year, just as it they were living in the UK. This is unfair, unjust and discriminatory.

                    • Hospedia and private parking companies at hospitals

                      Personal bedside phone lines, which also offer film, internet and tv bundles at unreasonable prices for the use of patients, are making further profits out of incoming calls from concerned loved ones.
                      Also privately run parking companies charge extortionate fees to park whilst visiting any inpatients.

                      Why not regulate these charges so that visitors don't have to worry about financial costs at these already distressing moments.

                      what is wrong with charging a token fee, or maybe even treat the charges as a donation toward the Nhs itself and likewise with the phone and entertainment services.

                      • April 2013, the NHS we know could cease to exist. contact ALL opposition parties to commit themselves to a reversal

                        After March private providers will be allowed to bid to run ALL services in the NHS. We need to pressure the opposition parties to commit themselves to reverse the changes even if it means paying NO COMPENSATION. It worked in 1947 and can again. We need to see some courage.

                              People on Housing Benefit should be charged 14percent for one "empty" room and 25 percent for two.The details of what is meant by empty room is disgusting,ex: two children of the same sex MUST share a room,not have one each,a disabled couple needing to sleep in separate rooms MUST share etc.,etc.This applies to public housing only! People on Housing Benefit in private accommodation are exempt.

                              • Unfair flat rate pension

                                The government is planning to introduce a flat rate pension of £140. The problem with this is that it will not be a flat rate for all pensioners. When it is introduced all new pensioners will get the new rate, but all existing pensioners will stay on the old rate. This means that someone born one side of the line will get a significantly reduced pension to someone born the other side of the line. This is clearly unfair and is therefore a job for 38 Degrees.

                                    • Changes to the pensions. Shouls be the same for all not a two tier system.

                                      It worries me that people who have made their contributions to the state pension system for more than 30 years will not be receiving the new rate if retiring before 2016. Whilst others will get £100 more per month but will have contributed less. All pensioners should be entitled to the same amount of state pension.

                                      • Adverse effect on access to homoeopathic medicines due to the simplification of The Medicines Act 1968

                                        The Medicines Act 1968 is being simplified, which is a good thing because a lot of duplication is being removed. However, as a result, there are some important elements which could adversely affect your access to homeopathic medicines if the proposals come into force.

                                        What will happen to my access to homeopathic medicines?

                                        If the current proposals by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) are endorsed by the Government the following would occur:

                                        * You would no longer able to get homeopathic medicines by phone or online To get any unlicensed homeopathic medicine a face-to-face consultation would be…

                                        • Don't use the 10bn overseas aid budget for 'defence'. British Welfare first.

                                          On the BBC news website this morning it claims that David Cameron is thinking of using the 10bn for overseas aid on 'defence' projects http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-21528464 This is in the light of criticism of the amount ring fenced for overseas aid. Let's have a petition against using this money on 'defence' e.g. stabilisation of other countries and promote its use for welfare in this country.
